Solid US job gains pointing
to a stronger recovery

Associated Press, by Josh Boak

Original Article

Posted By:Zarin, 7/4/2014 6:23:18 AM

The 5-year-old U.S. recovery is gaining momentum from a surprisingly robust job market and moving the economy closer to full health. Employers added 288,000 jobs in June and helped cut the unemployment rate from 6.3 percent to 6.1 percent, the lowest since 2008. It was the fifth straight monthly gain above 200,000 — the best such stretch since the late 1990s tech boom. The stock market signaled its approval. The Dow Jones industrial average surged 92 points to top 17,000 for the first time. The breadth and consistency of the job growth are striking in part because of how poorly

Comments:
AP keeps up the lie about the ´recovering´ economy. Mr. Boak must be trying to get back in the good graces of his editors - most of his recent stories have had more truth in them. This is all tissue paper stats - look at the labor force participation! And the Dow goes up 17,000 on this? We are in trouble.

If, repeat if, the US economy recovers it will be in spite of, not because of, Dear Leader Barack Hussein, who has not taken a single action in 6 years in favour of any recovery whatsoever, on the contrary, which should be a revelation as good as any of his true intentions.

The last thing the Left wants are economically independent Americans. The very last thing.

According to Ed Rogers in the WaPo, last month 523k Full-time positions were lost, 799k Part-time positions were gained. There´s your 280k job gains. No business can afford to pay for Obamacare for Full-time workers.

The reduction in "unemployement"? That´s because more people gave up looking for jobs. 47.7% of Americans are in Full-Time employement.

The economy is still tanking. And the libs are taking victory laps over half-truths and deceit.

You don´t go from a 3% contraction to a 3% growth because you get one better but still anemic jobs report. They´ve been shouting ´recovery!´ for five years now and we haven`t had one yet. Let them stop the quantitative easing (money printing) and see where we really are.

My understanding these jobs were mostly part time. How is the economy recovering on part time work???? As for the stock market, the U.S. is still pumping money into it with money we DON´T have. They are telling us that the unemployment rate is 6.1% when it is really 12.1%. It´s all a fantasy!!!!!

I suspect the number of US reporters who have taken classes in economics can be counted on one hand. Even reporters on the business beat often have problems with basic economic concepts and simple statistical analysis.

Providence had its hand on me, when I took a new job in May. Returned to a large company that I had been employed by before. The facility I left was part of another fairly large company but has been (the facility) in long, slow decline since 2008. Got the news this week that it is essentially closing its doors and moving production overseas. From about 140 employees (a good portion highly skilled toolmakers) to a skeleton crew. Most saw it coming, through years of layoffs.

The six-month job recovery coincides exactly with the truncation of jobless benefits expired at the start of the year proving what many conservative economists said all along: stop excessively long benefits and people will get off the teat and find jobs. Lesson over.

If the country can only create part time jobs for American workers, where are all the new jobs going to come from to employ the tens of millions of illegal aliens and unlimited numbers of their foreign family members that Obama wants to legalize, or allow into the USA, and throw into the legal US labor market?

The country needs 300,000 new jobs a month just to tread water. The only reason the unemployment rate dropped is because so many people used up their unemployment insurance and aren´t counted.

The Palestinians accused Israeli extremists of abducting and killing an Arab teenager and burning his body Wednesday, sparking hours of clashes in east Jerusalem and drawing charges that the youth was murdered to avenge the killings of three kidnapped Israeli teens. Seeking to calm the explosive situation, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged a swift inquiry into the "reprehensible murder" and called on people to respect the rule of law. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said it was clear extremist Jewish settlers were responsible and called on Israel to bring the killers to justice. "The settlers have killed and burned a little boy.

The al-Qaida breakaway group that has seized much of northeastern Syria and huge tracts of neighboring Iraq formally declared the establishment of a new Islamic state on Sunday and demanded allegiance from Muslims worldwide. With brutal efficiency, the Sunni extremist group has carved out a large chunk of territory that has effectively erased the border between Iraq and Syria and laid the foundations of its proto-state. But the declaration, made on the first day of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, could trigger a wave of infighting among the Sunni militant factions that formed a loose alliance in the blitz across

Ukraine´s critical presidential election got underway Sunday under the wary scrutiny of a world eager for stability in a country rocked by a deadly uprising in the east. While there were no immediate reports of fighting, pro-Russia insurgents were trying to block voting by snatching ballot boxes and patrolling polling stations. The vote was taking place three months after the ouster of the country´s pro-Russia leader, who was chased from power by months of protests triggered by his decision to reject a pact with the European Union and forge closer ties with Moscow. There were no immediate reports of clashes on Sunday

Many years ago, in upstate New York, there was a lady who was caught in a fierce snow storm that produced conditions called a "whiteout." That´s when the snow is falling so thick and fast that all you can see in any direction is just sheer white. This lady wandered around in the storm, struggling to try to get home, but there was no way for her to know where home was. Eventually she collapsed in the snow and died — something like 50 feet from her home that she could not see. All too often that image comes back

Sitting incongruously among the hangars and laboratories of NASA’s Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley is the squat facade of an old McDonald’s. You won’t get a burger there, though–its cash registers and soft-serve machines have given way to old tape drives and modern computers run by a rogue team of hacker engineers who’ve rechristened the place McMoon’s. These self-described techno-archaeologists have been on a mission to recover and digitize forgotten photos taken in the ‘60s by a quintet of scuttled lunar satellites. The Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project has since 2007 brought some 2,000 pictures back from 1,500 analog data

Surveillance cameras at San Jose International Airport successfully captured the teenager on the tarmac, climbing up the landing gear of a jet. But in the end, the cameras failed because no one noticed the security breach until the plane - and the boy - landed in Hawaii. Although the 15-year-old apparently wanted nothing more than to run away, his success in slipping past layers of security early Sunday morning made it clear that a determined person can still get into a supposedly safe area and sneak onto a plane. Video surveillance can help catch trespassers. Some airports use not just human eyes

It´s not a question most governments involved in the hunt for the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 care to answer: How much has the far-flung, month-long search cost? The U.S. bill alone has run into the millions of dollars, and some countries such as China have devoted more ships and planes to the effort than the Americans have. Australia is spending more than half a million dollars a day on just one of the ships it has in the Indian Ocean. But governments and military experts say it´s difficult to come up with a full estimate for an ongoing search, especially since many

Often television stars travel with assistants in charge of makeup and wardrobe. Jeremy Wade brought a tank with a black piranha and a candiru to a recent appointment. Wade hosts Animal Planet´s "River Monsters," the network´s most popular series, where he goes around the world to find ugly and often legendary creatures that lurk in murky waters. "River Monsters" begins its sixth season Sunday (9 p.m. EDT) with a story on a 1981 shipwreck in the Amazon. Much of the season´s stories are set in the Amazon, hence the piranha and candiru. Toothy piranha - you already know about them. The candiru?

New federal rule could end recycling

It seems to be a perfect match. Brewers need a way to dispose of the wet and mushy grains that are a byproduct of making beer. Farmers are looking for inexpensive but healthful feed for their livestock. So breweries across the country -- including those here in Central New York -- donate their used grains to local farmers. It´s free: The farmers just stop by the breweries and cart the stuff away, usually in large plastic containers. It´s a classic example of reuse and recycling, but a provision in the proposed federal Food Safety Modernization Act might bring it to an end. The

The Obama administration hopes to fight global warming with the geeky power of numbers, maps and even gaming-type simulations. The White House on Wednesday announced an initiative to provide private companies and local governments better access to already public climate data. The idea is that with that localized data they can help the public understand the risks they face, especially in coastal areas where flooding is a big issue. The government also is working with several high-tech companies, such as Google, Microsoft and Intel, to come up with tools to make communities more resilient in dealing with weather extremes, such as flooding,

With Crimea in Russia´s pocket, the world anxiously awaits Vladimir Putin´s next move. Beyond the prize of the Black Sea peninsula, a picture is emerging of what the Russian president ultimately wants from his power play: broad autonomy for Ukraine´s Russian-speaking regions and guarantees that Ukraine will never realize the Kremlin´s worst nightmare - joining NATO. The big question is whether Putin is willing to invade more areas of eastern Ukraine to achieve these goals. For the West, it all boils down to a tough dilemma over compromising with Moscow to avert military conflict or taking a hard-line stance and risking

Three Homeland Security buses arrived a few minutes later, trailed by numerous law enforcement vehicles. There is no information as to the buses´ destination. Earlier this week, federal officials said that 140 immigrants who had been detained crossing the border in Texas would arrive Friday. But since the blockade by protesters Tuesday at Murrieta, officials have declined to provide information about the movement of the immigrants.

WASHINGTON-- First ladies typically avoid getting into public scraps, but Michelle Obama has jumped into perhaps her biggest battle yet. She´s fighting a House Republican effort to soften a central part of her prized anti-childhood obesity campaign and she says she´s ready "to fight until the bitter end." Mrs. Obama even mocked the GOP effort in an opinion column and argued her case before her Twitter followers.

President Obama has, except on fleeting occasions, routinely disdained the customary Oval Office language of compromise and coalition-building for the low arts of sophistry and belittlement. That was to be expected, given his background as a Chicago community organizer and product of that city´s corrupt Democrat political machine. But Obama has far exceeded dismal expectations. No previous American president employed the systematic distortion of fact and mendacious characterization of opponents that have typified Obama´s presidency. His "so sue me" speech last week is a classic illustration of the community organizer practicing Saul Alinsky´s 13th rule: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize

DAYTON — Security will increase at a Dayton store where the owner fatally shot a teenager who, along with another suspect, was allegedly trying to rob the business at gunpoint Monday. The death of Isiah Haggins Jr., 16, of Trotwood, was officially ruled a homicide by the Montgomery County Coroner´s Office. The cause of death was multiple gunshot wounds. Dayton police said the teen and another suspect entered the Step-N-Style store at 3217 W. Siebenthaler Ave. armed with guns and demanded cash. The store owner, who´s been robbed before, also had a gun and shot Haggins. The second suspect fled

Sources inside MSNBC say former White House Spokesman Jay Carney, who recently resigned from his post at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, will likely be headed to MSNBC. Carney is in talks for a contributor position. If it happens, Carney would follow in the natural footsteps of a few other aides to President Obama who were welcomed into the MSNBC family upon leaving their jobs. The last White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, became an MSNBC contributor in May, 2013, while David Axelrod, a top aide to Obama, became one in February 2013.

The headline of today’s jobs report, that 288,000 jobs were created in the last month, is positive. At least, it is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. However, as with most economic reports these days, there is a veneer of good news — but when you look closer, the White House is using the positive headlines to hide the growing deterioration of the American workforce. I’m sure by now people are tired of reading about the bad news, and I’ll admit I am weary of having to blow the whistle and expose the truth every
